The 2016 exhibition program at Palais de Tokyo begins on February 19 with a season celebrating artists haunting the intervals between major disciplines such as painting, sculpture or cinema. These are liminal artists who renew their fields by taking their momentum from elsewhere. Besides of two major solo exhibitions and three solo exhibitions by artists recently awarded by an art prize, this season also reveals five new site-specific installations.
Season Haunting the Interval
February 19–May 16, 2016
The Adventure of Details
With about 300 works, this large-scale solo show at Palais de Tokyo is the first in Paris since the artist’s retrospective at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris, almost 20 years ago.
Florian & Michael Quistrebert
The Light of the Light
Palais de Tokyo is presenting the first large-scale monographic show of French artists Florian and Michael Quistrebert, nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2014. In their pieces, they summon the ghosts of Tàpies, de Staël and Picasso, amongst others, while going back over the main themes of modern art, using contemporary, experimental techniques, in association with their particularly personal approach to materials.
